RPC Project News and Notes
« on: August 05, 2015, 07:56:04 am »
Dear Board,

2015 promises to be a very exciting year for Roman Provincial enthusiasts, if not legendary.  With this in mind, I am starting this thread to report on some of the new developments in the field as they happen.  

Yesterday, I was kindly informed by Jerome Mairat that RPC Consolidated Supplement I–III (1992–2015) has gone public.  It can be accessed at the bottom of the RPC Online homepage:

http://rpc.ashmus.ox.ac.uk/
  
Enjoy, and congratulations to the hard working-editors and enthusiastic contributors!

Stay tuned.  This is just the beginning!

  
Best regards,

Mark Fox

Dear Board,

Here is a little something I have been meaning to post for a while now:

https://www.academia.edu/15289195/Not_Built_in_a_Day_RPC_Online_

It explains last December's monumental RPC Online update and gives a heads up on future plans, both online and offline.
  
Enjoy!

Dear Board,

Just in, hot off the wire:  RPC III is now online!

http://rpc.ashmus.ox.ac.uk/

The first copies of the paper version should be hitting shelves very soon from now---if not already.

Hello Mark,

Thank you for notifying us that RPC III was online. I've had great fun this weekend looking through it. It's truly a monumental work!

One of the two coins I submitted is listed in the database. I'm curious about the second one. My guess is that it was reattributed to another city and wasn't unpublished after all (the reverse legend isn't complete and I may have mis-read it). Or maybe it was judged to be a fake, though I wouldn't have thought that likely since I showed it to Prof. Amandry personally at the NY show in 2014 and he expressed no reservations about the coin.

GAT

Update: I just checked again and the second coin is listed. Not sure how missed it. Very good to see in any case.

RPC 6 now online (Elagabalus-Maximus)
« Reply #9 on: June 06, 2017, 10:54:02 pm »
RPC 6 is now online at the RPC site. The plan as I have heard is to have it online for a year (to sort out errors and add unknown items) and then have it issued as a book.

I see that RPC 6 online so far includes only Asia Minor and Egypt, however.

So two very large groups of coins are for the time being left out: European mints (especially Thrace, Lower Moesia, Macedonia) and  Syrian-Phoenician-Judaean-Mesopotamian mints.

Dear Board,

According to Michel Amandry, RPC I will also be online soon, by the end of the year.  

Also, William Metcalf, in a recent e-mail to a friend, remarked that the deadline for coin submissions for RPC X is fast approaching.    

RPC Supplement 5 (2019), by the way, is intended to be the last traditional RPC supplement published as a PDF file.  As already indicated, new material/data will be directly added to the online databases from now on, although I remain uncertain whether such updates will happen all the time or only when a significant amount of new material is collected.


Best regards,

Thank you very much for your interest in RPC online.

Volume I will indeed be published later this year. Hopefully, in November.
And there are other volumes to come soon after, even before volume X....

Best regards,

Jerome

The number of specimens listed for a type has often increased significantly. For coins where noted down "only 1 specimen in RPC" I now have to write "(only) 11 specimens known to RPC"   :'(

Hello,

I see RPC 4 is now splitted into four parts. Is it mean that it will be published as four separately volumes? Is there any approximate date of publishing RPC IV in paper?

Kind regards,
Pawel Zawora

Yes, volume IV will be divided in 4 parts. The first parts to be published on print are 4.2 (province of Asia) and 4.4 (Egypt). Both within a few years (I am not an author of these volumes so I can't be more precise, but that's the plan).

Best regards,

Jerome

VII.2 (Gordian) then VIII (Philip) online early next year. On paper approx. 12 months later.

PS: the new interface costed nothing (against what is said here http://forum.tpzn.pl/index.php/topic,13564)
